Trinity

No not the one from the Matrix...
Not the one who is supposed to be some cyberpunk equivalent of the Virgin Mary if I'm to believe what I read on the internet.
Not that there isn't a resemblance of course... Black leather, skilled in martial arts, taking pills, toting guns... shhhyeah... right.
No... I'm talking about the wrestler Trinity. THIS Trinity...
Stephanie Finochio, ( who looks a hell of a lot better for her age than I do... we were born the same year ) first came to my attention in her work as stunt woman. She appeared as Jennifer Garner's stunt double in ( the somewhat awful ) "Daredevil", and also worked on "the Bourne Ultimatum", "Spider-Man 2", "SwimFan" and "Indiana Jones&The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull". More surprisingly ( looking deeper into her credits, which is not nearly as dirty as it sounds ), she also appears to have done stunt work on the films "School of Rock" and "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", two films not known for their high action content. Hmmm...

But this is a cartoon about wrestling...

Trinity broke into wrestling in 2002, after receiving training at the hands of former ECW Champion, Mikey Whipwreck. Only 5 years into her career, she has already worked in OVW, TNA, and WWE ( ECW ). In TNA she was originally teamed with Kid Kash ( with whom she later feuded )... and later with Glen Gilberti as part of the NYC ( New York Connection ). After that she and Tracy Brooks competed to see who would win the favours of TNA Director of authority Dusty Rhodes... and come on now, why wouldn't she want some of this??
Her OVW stay was less eventful, but it did lead to her debuting as part of the newly re-formed FBI ( Full Blooded Italians ) in ECW. Dubbed the "Full-Bodied Italian"... fnarr fnarr... Trinity went out of her way to live up to that moniker, and I for one applaud her for it.

Thus todays cartoon...
